Audience Reactions – Newyorkland
January 12 – February 4, 2012
An intertextual assemblage, Newyorkland combines popular cop movies and TV police procedurals with first-person accounts from real-life police officers. Acclaimed director Kenneth Collins and prominent video artist William Cusick merge visual and performance art, documentary realism, cinéma vérité, and pure fiction as they follow four police officers struggling with the high costs of working within the demanding, dangerous, and secretive society of the NYPD.
